Kirkwood High school offers an Extended School Year program (ESY) for its students during the month of June. The program consists of credit recovery and credit enhancement courses. You may enroll in either credit recovery or credit enhancement-not both. Both programs require strict attendance-lack of attendance will result in being dropped from the course.
Credit recovery courses are designed for students who fail a core class (Social Studies, Math, English, & Science) and must retake the class to meet a graduation requirement. Courses run 4 hours in length and last 8 days for Session 1 and 9 days for Session 2. Bus service is available for students eligible for transportation.
Credit enhancement – Students who have not failed a core course can take a credit enhancement class. Health, Personal Finance, and Lifetime Fitness are the credit enhancement courses offered if enrollment dictates. Health and Personal Finance will be offered online through the Launch program. Lifetime Fitness will be offered on campus. Lifetime Fitness has a strict attendance policy - a student can have only 1 day of absence (4 hours). Any Lifetime Fitness student that has over 4 hours of absence will be dropped from the course. Lifetime Fitness will have a class that begins 7:30 AM and a 2nd class that starts at 10:45 AM.
Priority for enrollment is given to rising senior students who need the course for graduation. Students can take one course for ½ credit or two courses for 1 credit. Bus service is not available for credit enhancement.
